Joshua Garcia reveals he’s single amid dating speculations with Bella Racelis
Joshua Garcia opened up on the status of his love life and revealed that he is single amid speculations that he and beauty vlogger Bella Racelis are dating.
The actor said this in an exclusive interview with comedian Ogie Diaz during an event for a skincare brand, as seen on the latter’s YouTube channel on Tuesday, Nov. 15.
“Si Joshua ba single or double na? (Is Joshua single or double?)” Diaz asked, to which Garcia responded, “Single.”
Diaz then followed up and asked if the dating rumors hounding the actor and Racelis are true, but Garcia opted not to give a specific answer.
“‘Wag na nating pag-usapan ‘yan, basta ako, single ako… Wala nga akong kasama sa Japan e,” Garcia said, referring to his recent Japan trip with celebrity friends Kathryn Bernardo, Daniel Padilla, Ria Atayde and Zanjoe Marudo.
(Let’s not talk about that — I’m single. I didn’t even have someone to join me in Japan.)
Garcia then spoke about their trip and admitted that there were instances when he got envious of his friends because they had partners to enjoy the trip with.
“May mga times na maiinggit ka na ang sarap sana na may kayakap ka dito pero kasi kasama mo ‘yung mga kaibigan mo,” he stated. “Parang as one kami kaya parang hindi ko naramdaman na naiwan ako do’n.”
(There were times when [I] felt envious and said, “It must feel good to have someone to hug here,” but [I] was with [my] friends. It was as if we were one so I did not feel like I was left out.)
Speculations linking Garcia and Racelis have been making rounds online since August, when they interacted through comments on the vlogger’s Instagram post. The two of them were also spotted seemingly holding hands while walking in public last month.
